I hope no one objects to this --- it's more of a public thank you  
than anything else.


We've just taken Custom Stories, Inc., a customized children's  
storybook site live. The typesetting is done using XeLaTeX, and I  
don't believe would've been as effective using any other tool.  
(Unfortunately we couldn't afford to license Linotype's Zapfino for  
server use, so the letter in _Love Story_ isn't as nice as it  
could've been IMO).

(who is working on the typesetting for the next story sometime real  
soon now)

That should probably say:

The typesetting is done using XeTeX, and I don't believe it would've  
been as effective using any other tool --- specifically I used  
xelatex, 'cause I'm not cool and hip enough to know ConTeXt well  
enough to've been able to develop it in ConTeXt in a reasonable  
timeframe, even though in many ways that would've made for a cleaner  
interface to the server.
